NFS: Define and create superblock-level objects
Define and create superblock-level cache index objects (as managed by
Each superblock object is created in a server level index object and is itself
an index into which inode-level objects are inserted.
Ideally there would be one superblock-level object per server, and the former
would be folded into the latter; however, since the "nosharecache" option
exists this isn't possible.
The superblock object key is a sequence consisting of:
(1) Certain superblock s_flags.
(2) Various connection parameters that serve to distinguish superblocks for
(3) The volume FSID.
(4) The security flavour.
(5) The uniquifier length.
(6) The uniquifier text. This is normally an empty string, unless the fsc=xyz
mount option was used to explicitly specify a uniquifier.
The key blob is of variable length, depending on the length of (6).
The superblock object is given no coherency data to carry in the auxiliary data
permitted by the cache. It is assumed that the superblock is always coherent.
This patch also adds uniquification handling such that two otherwise identical
superblocks, at least one of which is marked "nosharecache", won't end up
trying to share the on-disk cache. It will be possible to manually provide a
uniquifier through a mount option with a later patch to avoid the error
